Type cast in style in a Vue component

 ·   ·  ☕ 1 min read

Do you type cast in Vue? Of course you do. So, is there a way to just not use Javascript shortcuts since they are so cumbersome?

Really?

You find this cumbersome?

let myNumStr = +myNum;
let myStrNum = "" + myStr;

See more at type casting in Javascript and shortcuts to type cast.

Regardless of your opinion, with Vue you now have the option to see more.. options.

See below -

<template>
  <input v-model.number="position" type="number" />
</template>
<script>
  export default {
    data() {
      return {
        position: 0
      };
    }
  };
</script>

Bad news if you wanted to go overboard with this - number is literally the only thing supported here. So, back to the cumbersome Javascript type conversions for rest of the use cases.
